GETTING IN

Fast-Track EU Citizenship for Descendents of Holocaust Victims

Americans of particularly (but not exclusively) Jewish descent may have another easy in besides Israel: Germany, and by extension, the EU. But any descendants of Holocaust victims from Germany have this option:

Under Article 116 of Germany's constitution, known as the Basic Law, anyone who had their citizenship revoked during the Nazi regime for "political, racist, or religious reasons" is eligible to reapply for German citizenship. The provision also makes allowances for the descendants of Nazi victims, and does not require them to give up the citizenship of their new home countries.



And of course, since citizenship in one EU country is more or less citizenship in all of them, well, this can work out quite nicely for those who qualify.
